ZEGA DAMS FOR BRYN REESE FINE CHINA
Celebrated for their luminous and exacting watercolors of historic garden architecture, the Paris-based team of Bernd H. Dams and Andrew Zega are gifted polymaths, combining an encyclopedic knowledge of architecture, gardens and design with exceptional artistic skill. The have written and/or illustrated ten books, among them three exceptional limited-edition artist's volumes - all while regularly mounting exhibitions of their work in Manhattan, Paris, Hamburg and Gstaad.
Yet early in their careers they were also talented designers, creating furnishings, bed linens, textiles and porcelain at Robert A.M. Stern Architects for private clients and international manufacturers. Given their background, it seems inevitable that they would unite with Bryn Reese Fine China, a company dedicated to reviving the art of the table with innovative procelain of the highest quality.
We are very pleased to introduce our first two patterns from our collaboration -Chinoiserie and Swag.
After surveying the market at the outset of the project, we noted that virtually no one has responded to today’s informal style of entertaining with services that evoke traditional porcelain designs, but with lightness, concision and elegance. We thought our design task was to accentuate and underscore the natural beauty of finely made porcelain, not to employ it as a canvas for our designs, and—we believe unique to the market and quite innovative—each service is not a single pattern adapted to all pieces but five different, related patterns that, like a musical score, build a whole far richer than any single movement, allowing each pattern to unfold as the meal itself unfolds.
We are pleased to assist you in making selections from our collection and hope you will enjoy the elegance, playfulness and timeless qualities of our offerings.
